Notes about this historic site

1 Fieldwalking was undertaken on the proposed site of an opencast mine. A light scatter of Medieval pottery was found,skirting the three edges of Lower House Farm. This could suggest that the area of the Deserted Medieval Village (PRN 127) extends to the west of the church of St. Nicholas.
